I would say good morning, but I'm late. By about 12 hours. So, instead, I will say welcome to my Monday Morning Motivator. I'll be the first to admit that I struggle on Monday mornings, and today was no exception, which is why this post is coming to you at this hour. I got very little sleep and morning came way to early for my liking. I was wholly unprepared for all the things I needed to do today. By the way, I'm a mom of 3 (ages 7, 5, and 1.5) and also do part time in-home daycare for 2 (ages 4 and 1) once a week. Today, my 2 borrowed extras came over at quarter to 5 in the morning. I turned off my alarm at 5:45 after coaxing my 18 month old back to sleep because my motivation had taken a vacation. When I did wake up, I did what I always do, and sometimes multiple times depending on the level of motivation I'm harboring for the day. And that is: make coffee. That's right. Coffee. It was my best friend this morning. It is my motivational kick in the pants when I need one. If you drink coffee, or any other liquid form of motivation, it's sometimes that little something extra we needed to really get going. I will work on trying to improve my positivity about Mondays and will continue to bring my thoughts about how to do that to you here. So until next week, just remember:
Have a great week!
